Very Bad Adventure Therapy

Activity: Engagement and professional developmentContent creation/deliveryAcademic


We are all advocates for opening the counselling room door and working with people in the great outdoors. However, simply being outdoorsy does not make us immune to poor clinical mistakes or ruptures to therapeutic relationships. This workshop will explore when adventure therapy goes wrong using real case examples from adventure therapy practice around the world. Attendees will interact and discuss case examples in this fun, light-hearted workshop where we are humbly reminded that being bad can make us better.
